The perfect app to teach your kids about money through completing chores and working towards goals. Don’t listen to us, listen to those that fell in love with it. “I love that the Homey not only encourages kids to develop a strong work ethic, but it teaches kids how money is earned, encourages long-term goal setting, instills real life financial skills, and connects the whole family with a fun approach to paid chores.” Crystal, MoneySavingMom “Homey is a great organizational tool for families!” Best Apps for Kids “Homey helps remind my children what jobs they haven’t done yet, so I don’t need to. It even inspires them to work a little harder to earn allowance. Better yet, they are learning to save up that allowance for a bigger reward.” Gloria, JugglingMother “A picture says a thousand words. And with Homey, those words are “this is the chore you’re supposed to be doing right now.” Snap a photo of your kid’s unmade bed and send it to them with a deadline, and then they can send a photo back once it’s taken care of.” Fatherly Features: - set daily, weekly or monthly recurring or one time chores for the whole family - set chores that are responsibilities and you won't pay for, and jobs to teach kids how to earn money or rewards - manage allowance and extra money rewards for each child - transfer allowance to a bank account (US only), or mark it as payed out in cash - track IOU - add or remove funds from wallet - set saving jars with financial goals - kids learn to manage their funds - Homey syncs across all devices in the household SHOW KIDS HOW MONEY IS EARNED With Homey you can pay kids commissions based on chores they do around the house like taking out the trash, cleaning their room, or mowing the grass.

Homey is a great app only I wish it would not take so long to take a picture. I wish there was no pictures!
We tried signing in and then we went to a page where it showed 49.99 a month for this app and in my opinion who wants to spend $50 on a app that you can find a cheaper app somewhere else which is zero dollars
MY CHILDREN WONT LISENT TO ME BECAUSE OF THIS APP… UGH ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!
This app is wonderful it helps me to keep track of what I am supposed to be doing and there are jobs were you can even earn money!😄
Alright, on the surface this app looks pretty great. However, whenever my children try to submit a chore it asks for photo proof (whether I request it or not) and the it doesn’t even let them take a photo. Also, this app uses terrible grammar which really gets on my nerves. Example- A a parent requeested photo prof. Honestly, this app is a piece of crap and a waste of money. It’s dysfunctional and ungrammatical and it should not be worth any subscription whatsoever.
I wouldn’t have downloaded it if I had known it required a monthly fee.
Our household is just me and my 11 yr old son, and we BOTH have ADHD! Hahahahaha it’s a lot of fun, a lot of crazy, and it used to be a lot of “did you remember to...” at bedtime when it was too late. This app keeps us both in check, and my son loves it! He’s asked me to add just about everything, from brushing his teeth to feeding the cat. I love that I can require photo proof, and with the paid version (worth every penny, seriously, skip a couple meals out each year) I can approve or disapprove from my phone. One thing I would really love to see is integration with the Apple Watch!
This is a nice app and has been helpful. It would be nice if you could sort the chores by date instead of by the week. I can only see today’s chores or for the week. What about sorting for “ tomorrow”?
This is exactly what I was looking for. It keeps track of what's owed, and enables me to deposit their savings. I didn't even know it had this feature until I downloaded it. Love it!
I've been using Homey for a few weeks now, and it's becoming one of my favourite apps. I do wish I could pick and choose which notifications I want to get (right now it's either on or off), with 5 kids notifications can get a bit much. Even so, this has been the first app that got my kids doing chores consistently, and without me nagging. I have a few recommendations: 1. don't bother setting up a spending jar - how the jars work, it's much better to keep spending in the "total money" and use jars for actual saving goals. 2. read the manual. I found it in the help section and it was a lifesaver. This app has more features than your usual chore app, and it can be a bit complicated to set things correctly. I thought the app was deleting chores, when in fact I had them set to multiple kids at once, and one kid always completed the one chore for all of them. 3. make sure your kids have just the permissions they need. I think the app could make this a bit more obvious, but I had all my kids set up as parents and there's no clue apart them being able to do everything (delete chores, add money to their wallets...). Lets just say they had a bit of fun with it. 4. This one if for the Homey team: MAKE TEXT BIGGER! I'm not getting any younger and some text is really small and white and hard to read, lol.
